Treasure Ireland Review
Setting sail to Treasure Ireland could be the most lucrative journey you've embarked on for some time. Those big jackpot figures up to 5,000x should be more than enough for your return ticket home and then some.
Don't expect any miracles in the design department. Given that this Irish-themed slot takes place at sea, there were some limitations with the setting and the green grass had to be replaced by the blue sea, naturally. The rainbow still makes an appearance and our main character is still a cheeky ginger leprechaun who enjoys a pint of ale along the way. If Northern Lights was going for a holiday programme soundtrack, then they've nailed it and it all feels rather fitting as you float off on the ocean waves.
The Scatter symbols provide more of a teaser for the most part as you won't feel the benefits until you reach the Free Spins Bonus. However, there’s a chance that just a couple of Scatters can force a respin and take you to the Bonus game, otherwise you'll need three or more to land at the same time. The Compass symbols could do you a solid with a stack of Wilds that might stick around for a while.
There's no denying that the Bonus game is the most enjoyable and easily the most lucrative part of the production with that minimum win figure and Treasure Chests providing all kinds of payment action.
Reaching the maximum 5,000x is easier said than done unless you happen to stumble across one of those jackpot figures during the Bonus game. This will only come courtesy of a Treasure Chest symbol producing the goods. As we aren't aiming for a huge maximum win, we’re treated to medium volatility, which is always nice. The RTP is 96.16%.
It wasn't my favourite Base game by any stretch of the imagination but this simple setup helps you build up a potentially beneficial Bonus round and that keeps things exciting along the way. There isn't much here to cause confusion but beginners may feel a little out of their depth as the Bonus gets underway—bear this in mind. It hasn't got the greatest win potential but who am I to argue with that? Slots are just as much about the entertainment value as they are the payout and Treasure Ireland presents a little bit of both.
